Critical Edge Film & Art festivals aim to give recognition to upcoming talent and bridge the gap between a growing independent film industry and modern audiences with experimental tastes. We feature indie screenings near college campuses where we play many of our short local, student, feature, international, or experimental film submissions. Our annual events take sometimes take place at multiple venues, and typically feature our submissions and award winners during a gala and award ceremony in theaters, galleries, or universities. The annual event showcases the films selected as winners of their submission category (among other selections). CEFF also features a free online photography competition for content to be featured on our social media profiles!


Film/Television/Media Market Annual Membership - we're offering categorical winners from each festival 12-month subscriptions ($299 value)! Festival selections from each festival (up to 20) will also be awarded 3-month subscriptions ($117 value) to the creative project pitching service!

"iPITCH.TV gives Screenwriters, Filmmakers and Creators the ability to pitch and sell TV or Movie ideas directly to Entertainment Industry Buyers by submission of written and/or video pitches."

InkTip Script Listing - we're offering three filmmakers from each festival the opportunity to submit their scripts and project to a script and media market. InkTip connects filmmakers, screenwriters, and creative visionaries with industry professionals and production companies, and has helped get hundreds of films produced since its inception!
